Oxford & Cambridge

The FSGS has Erasmus exchange agreements with the

For a visit abroad through these agreements you need to adhere to the program’s deadlines and regulations. Oxford and Cambridge each offer two positions for doctoral candidates every year. A faculty exchange is also covered by the agreements. Postdocs can use the partnership to conduct a research visit. This is independent from the Erasmus agreements.

Doctoral candidates receive a mobility grant through the program and can thus spare their travel budget. The FSGS scholarship does not have to be suspended. If the travel budget is used additionally to the mobility grant, you need to prove that the grant does not cover any billable costs. Further, you need to submit a travel expense report as well as receipts.

The exchange is administrated by our office and the department for International Student mobility - Welcome Services, Student Services Center (SSC)
